Karl’s slide guitar set the scene as we took our seats. Then the film started and we were there in the Texas desert with a lost, battered, mute but oh-so-expressive Harry Dean Stanton.

This film is so beautiful – both a love letter to America and an exploration of the ties we have with other people. We were all enraptured when Travis finally had that conversation with Jane (Natassja Kinski), so intimate yet separated by glass and speakers.

Ah, we love this film. Jen’s film notes are here. Photos below courtesy of Chelsea Abbot.
